Aren’t spray sunscreens SO convenient?! Especially with wriggly kiddos! By far the most requested sunscreen post was for the safest spray sunscreens. That’s why I bring you this Safest Spray Sunscreens 2019 post!

First, let’s talk about why even the safest spray sunscreens still not be the best choice… This is what the EWG said about spray sunscreens:

Sunscreen sprays are popular with consumers. In 2007, just under one-fifth percent of the sunscreens we reviewed were sprays; this year, about 30 percent were.

But EWG is concerned that these products pose an inhalation risk and may not provide a thick and even coating on skin. In 2011 the FDA raised similar concerns. The agency indicated it would ban sprays unless sunscreen companies submitted more data to prove that spray sunscreens protect skin and pose no safety hazards. Until companies can provide the data to negate these concerns, EWG cautions people to avoid these products.

EWG Sunscreen Executive Summary 2018

Anything that’s listed below is a 3 on the EWG scale… Unfortunately only EWG Certified, 1’s, and 2’s are considered “completely safe.”

Even the safest spray sunscreens aren’t considered “completely safe” because of the inhalation risk and the tendency to under-apply it.

Things you can do to make even the safest spray sunscreens safer to use:

  • hold your breath completely while applying, then walk to an area with fresh air to take that first breath
  • apply a TON, then rub with your hands to be sure even the tricky areas are covered
  • always reapply per the instructions on the bottle
